Kodak KAF 31600 CCD sensor : Kodak has once again set the quality standard for digital imaging with a new high-resolution image sensor that allow professional photographers to capture digital images with the most life-like detail possible. Already the world's leading supplier of image sensors for medium-format professional photography, Kodak is expanding its product line with the introduction of the world's highest-resolution sensors for professional photography. The Kodak KAF-31600 Image Sensor, featuring 31.6 million pixels, offer professional camera and camera back manufacturers resolution and image detail that was once unimaginable for digital cameras, allowing photographers to experience a new level of image quality.


Canon image sensors

Canon image sensors : Electronic devices are designed using semiconductor process technology, device technology and mounting technology, then manufactured using semiconductor manufacturing technology. Canon has worked on the development of all these technologies for many years and is devoted to inhouse development and production to manufacture high-grade advanced devices. For example, the CMOS sensor incorporated in the EOS-1Ds Mark II D-SLR camera is a 35mm full-frame sized large sensor boasting 16.7 million effective pixels manufactured in-house. In addition to imaging sensors such as these CMOS sensors, Canon also develops and mass-produces a variety of electronic devices optimized for the characteristics of various products.


Canon 16.7 Megapixel CMOS sensor

Canon 16.7 Megapixel CMOS sensor : Raising the operability of a digital SLR camera to the level of film-base SLR cameras required development of a large high-resolution CMOS image sensor. Digital cameras normally use smaller image sensors than the frame size of 35mm film. When an interchangeable lens is attached to a D-SLR with smaller image sensors, the effective angles of view and perspectives of the captured image differ from the focal length marked on the lens. For this reason, photographers were unable to utilize their experience using 35mm film SLR camera lenses with digital SLR cameras. In 2002 Canon developed a large, full-frame 36 mm x 24 mm CMOS image sensor, which is incorporated in the Canon EOS-1Ds.


Image Sensor from OmniVision for Mobile Cameras

Image Sensor from OmniVision for Mobile Cameras : OmniVision Technologies, the world's leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, today unveiled the world's first fully integrated 1/4 inch 2 megapixel CameraChip, the OmniVision OV2640. This new image sensor is based on OmniVision's latest 2.2 micron OmniPixel2 architecture, allowing it to be assembled in the very popular 8 x 8 mm sockets with a building height of about 6.5 mm. This is essentially the same size as today's standard 1.3 megapixel camera modules, giving mobile handset and device designers, for the first time, the ability to easily upgrade and implement a high volume mainstream 2 megapixel mobile camera solution.


Cypress Semiconductor mobile image sensor

Jasper Huitink : 2005-10-02 21:20:50
Cypress CMOS mobile image sensor : Cypress Semiconductor today launched a suite of 1/4-inch optical format, 1.3-megapixel imaging solutions designed to directly replace existing 1/4-inch VGA image sensors and 1/4-inch VGA SoC image sensors in camera-enabled mobile phones. These low-cost imaging solutions enable mobile device manufacturers to upgrade their offerings with improved image quality at higher resolution while maintaining the same optical format and form factor, resulting in a less-expensive bill-of-materials and lower cost of ownership. The image sensor and SoC feature a pixel size of 2.8-micron x 2.8 and an image array of 1280 x 1024 active pixels. Both devices offer progressive scan and an electronic rolling shutter.


OmniVision enables phones with 3.2 MP sensor

OmniVision enables phones with 3.2 MP sensor : OmniVision Technologies today introduced the OV3630, a high performance 3.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor for digital still image and video/still camera products. Incorporating OmniVision's new 2.2 micron OmniPixel2(TM) technology and a lens format of only 1/3.2 inches, the OV3630 enables a very compact auto focus and zoom camera module size and makes it possible for handset makers to bring 3 megapixel camera phones into the mainstream handset market. "This is the first product to showcase OmniVision's new OmniPixel2 technology," said Jess Lee, Vice President of the Mainstream Products Business Unit at OmniVision. The 2.2 micron pixel technology is the new standard for OmniVision.


OmniPixel2 architecture brings higher resolutions

Mark Peters : 2005-09-28 23:10:27
OmniPixel2 architecture brings higher resolutions : OmniVision Technologies today unveiled its new OmniPixel2 architecture. OmniPixel2's pixel size of just 2.2 x 2.2 microns is less than half the size of the first generation OmniPixel structures, and represents one of the industry's smallest pixel sizes commercially available. OmniVision OmniPixel2 also features three major new process and technology developments on both the sensor and system level, enabling better performance per area and a further reduction in overall sensor size. In a separate announcement today, OmniVision also introduced the OV3630 chip, its first 3 megapixel CameraChip designed for mobile applications and based on the new OmniPixel2 architecture.


Samsung unveils 7.2 Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor

Mark Peters : 2005-09-12 07:02:00
Samsung unveils 7.2 Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor : Samsung Electronics announced that it has developed a 7.2 Megapixel CMOS image sensor (CIS). It is the world's first 7.2M-pixel CIS for compact cameras with the smallest pixel size. Higher resolution CIS chips reflect industry-wide attention on CIS technology as a promising new imaging technology as well as a feasible replacement of charge-coupled device (CCD), especially in mobile applications such as camera phones, digital cameras and digital camcorders. This announcement was made at a press conference hosted by Samsung Electronics' semiconductor business president and CEO, Dr. Chang-Gyu Hwang in Seoul. Samsung's 7.2M-pixel CIS has a 1/2-inch lens aperture and a 2.25um pixel size.
